Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The latest in street performers in Rome. What are these people looking at?
This is a street performer unlike any I have ever seen on the street. Perhaps this pediatric attraction has been around for awhile, but not in my experience.
I happened upon little big blue baby while heading for my traditional first-day treat near the Pantheon. At Caffe Tazza d’Oro: granita di caffe. A sorbet-esque treat made from sweetened coffee, big ol’ crystals of deliciousness. Served between two pillows of panna (whipped cream).
I heard these admittedly annoying high squeals then saw from where they were coming. Look closely – you’ll see his tiny little hands. He was both endearing. And a little grotesque.
If anyone happened to snap him without tossing something into his milk (latte) can – he would unleash a stream of, well let’s assume it was, water.
